I have posted on here and was not fortunate enough to get an answer. I have never made a topsy turvy cake. I am sooo green and I tried to make on and I used regular cake mix from the box and of course you can't carve it, but I learned by trial and error. Please can some one tell this green horn, what to do. Is there specific directions for this. I Have been googling my fingers away but they only give instruction for carving and decorating. Please be so kind to direct me int he right direction.
There's a how to article on here that helped me out a lot. Also try Youtube. I found a video of someone doing a topsy turvy cake. I have no problems doing mine with boxed cake mixes. Just make sure they have been in the freezer for a liitle bit before you start trying to carve them. Good luck.
Here is an article on CC about topsy turvy building:
Awhile back, when I was trying to find info on them, I asked the same question in a forum. I got quite a few diagrams and info on it. Here is that thread:
hope that helps! Good luck!
Try the wasc(white almond sour cream) recipe on here. It's a doctored cake mix and you can do it in about any flavor. It's denser and will hold up to carving better.
I've heard several decorators say you need pound cake for a topsy turvy ( luckily I have not had to find out yet!!)
Thank you all sooooo much I will try the freezer! I also heard the almond cake was delicious! Again Thank You!
